After our visit to the Arlington National Cemetery and National Mall today, it’s hard not to feel a sense of pride for our country, its history, its people, and all the dedicated servicemen and servicewomen who have lost their lives so that we can all make the most of ours. Similarly, we should all feel a sense of pride in our respective professions, united by the mission of caring for the ill and injured, and having gathered together these past few days with the goal of being better and doing better for the sake of our patients.
